Hi my name is Rex! I am a southern boy who traveled to the big city with my siblings, all the way from Alabama. I'm ready to find out what this great place has to offer me!

I am loving towards all people big and small, and I love all doggie friends! Wrestling is my favorite, and when my person tells me to stop, I stop. Little people can even wrap their arms around my neck! I may back away at some point but I do not get mad at all.

Walking is a fun activity I do not pull! My energy level is even keel, when and when I've had enough, I pace back and forth, but then I find a fluffy spot and lay down.

I am loyal to my people and love to see what they are doing when they are around.
I am crate trained and housebroken.

I LOVE attention. I try to steal it from anyone else being praised or loved on. When in the car I like to rest my head on the center consul from the back seat to the front, that way you can keep tabs on me :)

I don't need to bound around a whole lot to be happy just as long as I have love, so fence or no fence I do my business and come in quickly unless my dog friends want to play! But if no fence I for sure need a leash! I'm hoping that you'll think I'm as great as my foster family does when you come to visit me!

Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details.

Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.

About Safe Haven Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small 501 C3 nonprofit rescue located in Elburn, Illinois. In 2014, Safe Haven Dog Rescue became its own non-profit. We are licensed by the Illinois Agriculture Department.
The majority of our dogs and puppies are pulled from Kill Pounds and Shelters in KY, TN, AL and Illinois. When a foster home is available we will also accept owner relinquishment’s due to illness or foreclosure. We work hard to find local rescue groups within these states to pull the dogs into their program while we coordinate transportation and placement into foster homes.
Please take a few moments to read the stories about the dogs and puppies we have available for adoption. We disclose everything we know about the dogs, sometimes we know a lot often we know only that they were strays, thrown away on the side of the road, in the woods, or found in abandoned houses. While we don’t always know their past we are certain that their future is much brighter.
We hope that you and your family are part of the future…..
